Obito was born to the Uchiha Clan years before the Third Shinobi World War. After graduating the Ninja Academy's Graduation Exam, he was placed in a Genin team consisting of Rin Nohara and Kakashi Hatake and their Jounin instructor Minato Namikaze. The team would complete many missions and in that time, Obito would develop strong feelings towards Rin as well as a strong rivalry and sense of jealousy towards Kakashi. When Obito first took the Chūnin Exams, his team made it to the one-on-one match part of the exam, where Obito faced off against Might Guy. He lost the match after he ended up choking on a piece of candy trying a jutsu, allowing for Guy to knock him out with a kick. The following year, Obito took the Chūnin Exams again, and this time passed and was elevated to become a Chūnin.
By the time that the ninja world had been thrust into the Third Shinobi World War, Obito teamed up with his teammates to join the war effort. One of their missions was to destroy the Kannabi Bridge so that the relief efforts between Iwagakure and Kusagakure would crumble and prevent them from recovering their strength. Minato was unfortunately called to the front lines, which left the team in charge of Kakashi, much to the chagrin of Obito. As they made their way through the country, they came into contact with enemy Stone ninja who attacked the three along a river bank. Despite the efforts of Obito and Kakashi, Rin was captured and taken captive by the Stone ninja. Obito quickly decided to chase after her, but was stopped by Kakashi, who told him that the mission was more important and that Rin should wait until after they had finished, stating that the enemy ninja knew she was a medic so they wouldn't kill her immediately.
Obito grew very angry, asking how Kakashi could abandon a member of their team and a friend, but couldn't convince Kakashi to change his mind. Obito punched him and told him that even though ninjas who don't follow rules are regulations are trash, those who don't care for their friends are below trash. He follows the trail of the enemy ninja and locates their hideout, a cave carved in the side of a small hill. As he's preparing himself to infiltrate the hideout and save the love of his life, he is attacked by one of the ninja that heard him but saved by the timely arrival of Kakashi. The two team up to fight the ninja but find out that he uses a jutsu that turns him invisible, preventing them from attacking and forcing them in the defensive. Kakashi loses his left eye after defending Obito from a surprise attack, and as the enemy comes back to finish off Obito, he turns around and stabs his kunai in the air, revealing his activated Sharingan. Because of the Sharingan's ability to "see" chakra, Obito was able to see invisible ninja and plan accordingly, killing him and saving Kakashi. After fixing up his eye with a med kit, Kakashi and Obito then went inside the hideout to save Rin.
The two find Rin being guarded by the other Stone ninja and Rin under a genjutsu. The two rush forward and fight against the man, and with their teamwork they are able to press the ninja into retreating outside, allowing them to release Rin. However the Stone ninja used a jutsu that collapsed the cave they were in, and as the three were trying to leave, Kakashi was struck down by falling debris on his right side, the one without an eye now. Going back to save him, Obito threw him out of the way as a larger boulder fell on him, crushing his whole right side of his body. Obito decided to give Kakashi his left eye and Sharingan to replace the one he lost and to act as a piece offering between the two. Telling him to take care of Rin, Obito told them to leave as he sensed more ninja approaching, and soon the rest of the rocks fell on him as another jutsu was used to collapse the rest of the debris.
The Birth of Evil
After Obito's "death", he was not killed by the boulders. Madara Uchiha soon found and saved him, then replaced the destroyed half of Obito's body with White Zetsu. Madara then starts to lecture Obito on about how to world is evil and creates nothing but hate. Obito doesn't care and tries to leave, but his body is too weak and damaged from his injuries.
Obito begins to train his body to become strong enough to leave the cave. After time passes, he gets an alert from one of the Zetsu that Kakashi and Rin had been ambushed by a group of Mist ninja. Obito then rushes to the wall and punches it in an attempt to get out but his Zestu arm breaks off. Then one of the Spiral patterned Zetsu agree to help and encases his body over Obito's, giving him monstrous strength. He then heads out to the battlefield.
Obito makes his way through the forest and towards his friends, hoping that Kakashi was going to be able to keep Rin safe. He was confident that with both of them there, nothing that could stop them. But as Obito gets to the field, he smoke clears and shows Kakashi killing Rin via his "Chidori" attack. This causes Obito and Kakashi to awaken their Mangekyo Sharingan. Kakashi then passes out and Obito goes on a rampage.
The End Result
Obito then rushes towards the Mist Ninja and kills all of them with his new intangible/dimension teleporting technique, declaring that he was in hell. After he is done with the rampage he goes over to Rin's and holds her in his arms. He then promises that he will create a world where she is still alive.
Obito returns to Madara to learn the details of The Moon's Eye Plan. After all the planning is over Madara tells Obito that the one to revive him will be Nagato and sends Obito to place the Rinnegan in the youth's eyes. As part of the plan Obito would take Madara's name and start the organization called Akatsuki, convincing years later to abandon his peaceful methods and start using more lethal ones, the first one consisting of gathering nine other S-class rogue ninja to join. After they joined, Obito, now called Tobi, placed in Nagato the plan to capture the nine Tailed Beasts, not knowing that Tobi had different goals for them. Tobi then went to Kirigakure and used his Sharingan to take control of and manipulate the Fourth Mizukage.
Battle Against A Master
On the night of Naruto Uzumaki's birth, Kushina Uzumaki was taken to a secret location guarded by a seal and some Anbu. Using information given to him from Madara, Tobi appeared and dispatched the Anbu and passed through the barrier. He knew that the seal containing the Kyuubi, or Nine-Tailed fox spirit, would weaken during labor and attempted to steal the beast. He killed Biwako, Hiruzen's wife, taking baby Naruto from her and tried to bargain Naruto's life for the Kyuubi. He threw Naruto in the air and was about to stab him but Minato saved him only to realize that Tobi placed explosive seals on Naruto's blanket. Minato quickly got Naruto out of the blanket and fled from the structure which blew up, and Kushina was taken by Tobi. Minato placed his "Flying Thunder God" on Kushina but didn't get there before the Kyuubi was released. Kushina however survived because of her strong life force. Minato brought her back to their home with Naruto and went back to stop Tobi.
Tobi arrived at the edge of Konohagakure and summoned the Kyuubi there and it started going berserk. Minato appeared on the Hokage monument and stopped the Kyuubi's chakra blast. Tobi tried to sneak up on him but Minato reacted instantly and tried to stab him, but it passed through him. Tobi tried to warp Minato away, but he teleported to safety. He followed after where he revealed long chains shackled to his wrist an charged at Minato, phasing through him and wrapping Minato in the chains, but Minato was able to teleport away again. Tobi and Minato then charged at each other one last time, but this time Minato threw his special kunai which went through Tobi's face, but just as Tobi grabbed Minato to warp him away, Minato teleported to the kunai he threw and slammed him from behind with a "Rasengan". Tobi survived the "Rasengan" and leaped away, with his left arm apparently oozing away from his injury. Unknown to him is that Minato placed a "Flying Thunder God" seal on his body and instantly stabbed him and placed another seal on Tobi's body, nullifying his control over the Kyuubi. Tobi left promising that the Kyuubi will be his again, and that the world will bow to him.
Tobi first appeared directly after Sasori's death, where he was found by Zetsu flipping Sasori's ring like a coin asking if he could join now. Being Zetsu's subordinate, the two sides of Zetsu's personalities argued with each other but Tobi was ultimately allowed to join Akatsuki when one side of Zetsu said "we can let him in, Tobi is a good boy". He then accompanied Zetsu in the hunt for Deidara's ring, though both were surprised to find Deidara alive after his supposed self-explosion. Tobi and Deidara began speaking to each other, but the conversation ended after Tobi made one joke too many and Deidara began to strangle Tobi with his legs, due to him being armless.
Tobi would become Deidara's new partner, whom he referred to as "senpai" (Japanese: a senior at work or school, a superior, an elder). The duo's first mission was to capture the Three-Tailed Beast, Isobu. At the battle, Tobi ran away from the beast as it started chasing him, giving Deidara the opportunity to send one of his explosives at the great beast. Although the fight went unseen, Tobi was proud of himself for beating the Three-Tailed demon with his Jutsu and was seeking Deidara's approval. Deidara tried to explain to Tobi that it was a combined effort, but would later excuse their easy victory over the beast claiming that it was too stupid to use it's own power. When Tobi remained silent, Deidara thought he was taking what he said too seriously, until a snore escaped Tobi's mouth. Deidara proceeded to awake Tobi with a bomb to the face.
Tobi and Deidara then set out to hunt down either Sasuke Uchiha or Naruto Uzumaki, and Deidara found Sasuke first. Tobi distracted Sasuke while Deidara tried to blow him up, this failed and Sasuke attacked but Deidara jumped out of the way. Tobi was sliced in half across the midsection, but simply rose back up without a mark anywhere on his person and tried to convince Deidara that he shouldn't fight Sasuke, advice which Deidara ignored. During the battle, Tobi would try to assist Deidara, placing Deidara's bombs in specific areas and even tried to trick Sasuke. Although whenever it appeared that Deidara had been killed, Tobi would begin mourning, only for Deidara to reappear and tell him to shut up. Deidara, after getting increasingly frustrated with Sasuke, told Tobi to run, and Tobi, knowing the attack Deidara was about to use, fled. He later explained that the attack sent microscopic bombs into the air, and would destroy whatever inhaled them from the inside.
After Deidara used his final jutsu and self-destructed, Tobi was announced dead even though Zetsu couldn't find his body. Pein stated that Deidara was special but Tobi was easily replaceable, Kisame Hoshigaki however said he'd miss Tobi since he made Akatsuki not so gloomy. Pein and Konan would later be seen meeting with a mysterious individual giving them orders, this shadowed figure would be revealed as Tobi and he had a Sharingan visible from the eye hole in his mask. He'd later been seen sitting on top of the statue of Madara Uchiha outside of Konoha, wondering if Sasuke would remain a snake or shed his scales and become a hawk.
Recently Tobi has wandered into the Konoha eight-man team consisting of Naruto, Hinata, Sakura, Sai, Yamato, Kakashi, Kiba, and Shino. Naruto attacked Tobi knowing he's from Akatuski with his "Rasengan". At first it seemed like Naruto made the hit, but in the end Naruto and the "Rasengan" faded through Tobi like he was a ghost. Kakashi commented that Tobi is just playing with them. Naruto attacked Tobi once more but with a frontal attack. He kicked Naruto in the stomach only to find out it was a clone, then he hit the real Naruto in the face, sending Naruto zooming into a lake behind Naruto's teammates.
Tobi ran around avoiding all of the team's attacks, irritating and baffling them. Shino used his Destruction Bugs for a wide-area assault, wanting to figure exactly how Tobi was escaping their attacks. Tobi tried to avoid the bugs but they swarmed around him and started feasting on his chakra. Yamato used his "Mokuton" to attack, but Tobi disappeared. The team started to think that he can make himself "cease to exist." Kakashi speculated that however Tobi's doing it, that his time/space skills are greater than even Yondaime's. Tobi would then appear behind them, wanting their attention. Kiba tried to attack using his "Fang Over Fang" technique, but Tobi hopped to the side. Kiba believed that he went through him again, but the others told him that he just missed. Zetsu then appeared beside Tobi and told him that Sasuke had just killed Itachi Uchiha, stunning the Leaf ninjas. Tobi said "Whoa! Didn't see that coming! ...NOT! Just as I predicted." Zetsu also told Tobi that Sasuke might be dying so they started to head towards his direction. As Tobi was leaving, Kakashi got a glimpse of his Sharingan, surprising him and making his identity even more mysterious.
Tobi showed up where Sasuke and Itachi were before Zetsu, and commented that his former partner was too slow, of which Zetsu angrily responded that he can't move as fast as Tobi can. Tobi then asked if he recorded everything and Zetsu said yes, much to his satisfaction. Tobi then says that they have to hurry and get Itachi's corpse and Sasuke out of there.
Sasuke then awakens in a darkened bedroom. Tobi first speaks and informs Sasuke that he won, but shouldn't be so careless about his life. He then stepped out of the shadows and tells him that that they met before, but he isn't his enemy. Tobi then starts to take off his mask, stating that he's also a surviving Uchiha. At this point, Sasuke's eye turns into the Itachi's Mangekyou Sharingan and "Amaterasu" starts to engulf Tobi, he falls back into the shadows screaming. Sasuke is baffled as to what happened, but Tobi steps out of the shadows saying that Itachi gave him his Mangekyou Sharingan, possibly as a last ditch effort to kill him or to keep him away from Sasuke. Tobi makes a joke saying that it could be called a fail-safe, but Itachi only got as far as "fail." He then tells Sasuke that he was the one that helped Itachi destroy the Uchiha clan, and called himself Madara Uchiha and said that he's going to tell Sasuke the truth about his brother.
Tobi said that the only people that knew the truth about Itachi were the Third Hokage, Danzo, and the elders Homura and Koharu. There's no way they'd ever speak about it, and the truth about Itachi would fade away just as he planned. But what Itachi didn't know is that Tobi knew too, but Itachi didn't trust him and tried to keep his mouth shut with "Amaterasu". Sasuke started having a panic attack and Tobi tried to hold his head up and told him to breathe, but Sasuke swatted his hand away and blacked out. When Sasuke woke up, he found that he was tied up. Tobi apologized and said that he had to, and told him that Itachi was ordered to kill the Uchiha clan by Konoha. Tobi said that there was a big problem since Konoha was formed at that to realize what happened he'd have to tell the story from the beginning, roughly 80 years ago. Tobi explained that life was a battlefield back then and his battles led to conflict with the Senju clan and he eventually faced their leader, Hashirama Senju, a man Madara admired most.
Hashirama was respected and feared as the most powerful, and only the Uchiha clan were powerful enough to compete against the Senju, so when ever one side hired the Senju the other hired the Uchiha. Madara himself became infamous due to their battles, and that's when Sasuke interjected, asking if he took his brother's eyes for fame, but Tobi declined saying that he did it to protect his clan. The more revered they became, the more sought to conquer them and his brother offered his eyes to him. But shortly after, the Senju clan asked for a truce with the Uchiha. Madara was skeptical though, after so much hate and bloodshed he didn't believe their declaration of peace was sincere and that they'd wipe out the Uchiha one day, but his clan wanted it and so he reluctantly agreed. Soon after they made a deal with the Land of Fire and the system of one country and one ninja village was created and quickly adapted by the other countries, as a result the world became rather peaceful.
But a new problem arose, the position of Hokage. The Land of Fire and the village all chose Hashirama. Madara was worried about the status of the Uchiha clan with their once greatest enemies in control so he decided to oppose Hashirama for the position, but even the Uchiha clan turned their backs on Madara. He decided to leave the village, but returned with the Kyuubi, wanting revenge and fought Hashirama, but was defeated and thought dead. Hashirama's younger brother wanted to make sure the Uchiha didn't follow in Madara's footsteps so he gave them the position of the police force as a sign of trust, but it's true purpose was to separate the Uchihas and keep them under watch. Some of the Uchiha realized what was going on and knew Madara was right, but the Senju clan retained supremacy and their efforts were too late.
Then 16 years ago, the Kyuubi attacked the village. Since the Mangekyou Sharingan is able to control the Kyuubi, Konoha's leaders immediately suspected the Uchiha clan and they were forced to live in a corner of Konoha and were closely watched by ANBU. The Third Hokage opposed this, but his voice went unheard. They were segregated and discriminated against.
Sasuke's father planned to take over the village and used Itachi as a spy in the Anbu, but Itachi was a double agent and was feeding information about the Uchiha to Konoha too. Itachi experienced the Third Ninja War when he was four years old and it made him want to avoid conflict, that's why he sided with Konoha. If the Uchiha did attack the village would be in a state of flux and weakness and other villages would surely had attacked, which likely would had started a 4th ninja war. Itachi was given the task of slaughtering his own clan to avoid finger pointing, Tobi expressed that at the time he was still bitter and wanted war so he could get revenge on both the Senju and Uchiha, Itachi however knew that Tobi was alive and sought him out to make him a deal; he would give Tobi his chance for vengeance against the Uchiha if he promised not to harm the village. Hiruzen continued to try negotiating, but they led nowhere and Itachi and Tobi fulfilled the task. But Itachi couldn't kill Sasuke, he threatened Danzo not to harm him and begged Hiruzen to protect Sasuke and promise not to tell him the truth.
Sasuke stopped Tobi at that point, insisting that he almost died fighting Itachi multiple times. Tobi responded that Itachi had to force Sasuke into a corner in order to purge him of the Curse Seal and Orochimaru along with it, and hoped that Sasuke would gain the Mangekyou Sharingan from killing him. Sasuke refused to believe Tobi, saying he was lying and accusing him of summoning the Kyuubi and getting the Uchiha blamed. Tobi dismissed that however, saying that Itachi lied to Sasuke so he wouldn't trust him, even gave Sasuke the Amaterasu to try and keep him away. Itachi joined Akatsuki to keep an eye on them and returned to the Leaf village after the Third Hokage's death as a warning to Danzo and the elders. Itachi wanted Sasuke to kill him, avenge the Uchiha clan and return to the Leaf village as a hero... Tobi then let Sasuke go.
Akatsuki and Taka
Tobi was then sitting on some rocks next to the sea shore with Sasuke, Suigetsu, Karin, and Juugo. Sasuke awakened his Mangekyou Sharingan and proclaimed that Team Hebi will now be called Team Taka, and that they are going to destroy Konoha. Madara asked him if he wanted Itachi's eyes, but Sasuke declined; he said he is going to see things differently than Itachi.
Tobi goes to see Kisame, whom is confused since he believed Tobi died. Tobi apologizes for keeping Kisame out of the loop since they're so close and shows him his face. Kisame perks up and says that he feels more comfortable now since he's working with the Mizukage, leader of the Mist village.
Tobi and Kisame then meet with Taka and Tobi asks Sasuke what he's planning on doing. Sasuke states that they're going to take out the Leaf village's elders, no one else. Kisame says that others will get involved, and that Taka isn't powerful enough. Suigetsu gets frustrated and says that he wasn't serious in their play fight and attacks Kisame, but Tobi blocks Suigetsu's sword with his arm. Karin get upset and Suigetsu proclaims that the only reason he joined Sasuke was to get Kisame. Tobi then says that Akatsuki lost too many members and is no longer powerful enough either and that the two teams will have to work together. Sasuke is doubtful but Tobi said he'll give him one of the Bijuu, he goes on to explain that Bijuus are chakra monsters and that Hashirama actually had several under his control, he then divided them amongst the other villages as a sign of trust and to keep a balance of power. Tobi proclaims that it isn't a bad deal, and Sasuke says he's generous... but Tobi replied that if Sasuke betrays Akatsuki that he's a dead man. Kisame says that Akatsuki has seven, and Tobi says that Akatsuki will capture the Nine-Tails and that Taka can take the Eight-Tails.
After the meeting is over, Tobi meets with Zetsu. He says that since Itachi died that he doesn't have to keep their agreement anymore. Zetsu says that Tobi waited a long time, but he didn't believe that so many of Akatsuki's members would die to get them where they are. Tobi then praised the fallen Akatsuki and is happy that he won Sasuke over.
Tobi is later shown sitting near Konan and Pein. Tobi asks why Pein hasn't gone after the Kyuubi yet, Pein said that he had an unexpected guest. Tobi then mocks Pein, saying that Jiraiya lived up to his reputation if the "invincible" Pein had so much trouble with him. Pein got angered by this and said that Jiraiya was dispatched and that he can go after the Kyuubi whenever he wants. Tobi then starts to leave and informs Pein that he has to hurry since Konoha will be ready for him if he waits too long, then informs them that he sent Sasuke after the Eight-Tails. Konan was skeptical if Sasuke could succeed, but Tobi promised he would.
After Team Taka brought back the Eight-Tails, Tobi along with Kisame and Zetsu start to seal it while Pein and Konan are gone retrieving the Nine-Tails, however it was just a Substitution. Madara later intercepted Team Taka whom were off to make their offensive against Konoha. Team Taka said they were parting with Akatsuki, but Tobi told Sasuke that he warned Sasuke that he'd kill him if he betrayed Akatsuki, adding on that the Eight-Tails was a fake. Tobi told them that he'll let their failure to capture the Eight-Tails slide and he wants them to do something else before they can leave Akatsuki. Sasuke tried to attack Tobi, but failed. Tobi told him that there was no point in destroying Konoha since Pein already did it, and told them that the Five Kages were going to have a meeting... one of them being Danzo, who wanted the Uchiha wiped out. He then had Zetsu lead Team Taka to the Kage meeting; Zetsu split in two and the light half lead them while the dark half remained with Tobi. They begin to talk, Tobi reveals that Pein was supposed to resurrect him, and that he plans to eventually link Sasuke up with the Heretical Demon Statue, and that he's going to speed up his "Moon's Eye Plan."
While Sasuke and his team's at the Kage meeting, Tobi tells the light Zetsu to inform the Kages that Sasuke's there. After this, Tobi goes to visit Naruto whom is taking a nap, and says that he just wants to talk. Naruto tries to attack, but fails, however Kakashi and Yamato quickly show up to separate Tobi from Naruto. Kakashi reveals that he knows Tobi is actually Madara. Tobi first asks Naruto how he managed to get Nagato to betray him, but Naruto demands to know what Tobi's going to do with Sasuke. Tobi starts to tell them about Sasuke and tells them all about Itachi. They think he's lying, but he insists that he isn't. He then tells them something he didn't tell Sasuke, he tells them about the birth of the Uchiha and the Senju. Rikudou, the forefather of all ninjas and the first person to possess the Rinnegan, tried to use his teachings to unite the world and bring peace. However he laid on his deathbed before he could achieve his dream. But he had two sons, one inherited his eyes and spiritual power, the other inherited his body and physical power. The two brothers had different ideals on how to bring peace to the world, the oldest thinking that it requires power and the younger thinking it requires love. Rikudou decided that it was the younger brother that should be Rikudou's successor. The older brother however was jealous, believing the younger brother stole his birthright and they clashed against each other; their descendants too would continue this feuding... the descendants of the older brother are the Uchiha, and the descendants of the younger brother are the Senju. He says that Naruto really reminds him of Hashirama, the man he admired and hated, and further explains that the Uchiha are cursed with hatred and that's what drives Sasuke.
Moon's Eye Plan
Tobi then appears at the Kage meeting and saves Sasuke from certain death and teleports both him and Karin away. He then decides to talk with the Kages. He tells them about how Rikudou fought the Juubi, the Ten-Tailed demon, and sealed it within himself to stop it. But knowing that the Juubi would be released upon his death, decided to seal Juubi's body in the moon and split it's chakra into nine pieces and spread them across the globe, which became the Bijuu. Tobi plans to collect all the Bijuu and restore Juubi, making himself it's new host. Then he will project a super "Tsukiyomi" on the moon which will put everyone in an illusion, and with this he will bring peace to the world. He says that he wants to know their opinion and whether or not they'll comply and give over Naruto and Killer Bee, but they refuse, so Tobi declares the Fourth Ninja World War.
After leaving the Kage summit, Tobi caught up with Danzo and his bodyguards, Fu and Torune, saying that he hadn't seen Danzo since the Uchiha Massacre. Danzo's bodyguards attacked and Tobi, forcing him back. Danzo then told them to cover him. While they attacked, Danzo started undoing the brace and bandages on his right arm. Torune threw kunai which Tobi dodged, but it was just a distraction while Fu tried to use "Mind-Body Switch", but Tobi phased through the ground to avoid it. Tobi reappeared behind Fu, Fu tried to attack with his tanto but Tobi grabbed his hand and was about to punch him, but Torune threw a kunai at Tobi which forced him to phase, allowing Fu to escape. They realized that Tobi can't attack while he's phasing, so Torune took off his gloves and the duo attacked in unison.
Fu went through Tobi and he spun around to punch him while Torune came at Tobi from behind, but it was a trick, Tobi just acted like he was going to attack and Torune went through Tobi and accidentally hit Fu. Tobi realized that they were from the Yamanaka and Aburame clans, and that Torune's punch infected Fu's arm with his insects, but Torune healed Fu. Torune then took off his jacket and attacked Tobi, but Tobi teleported him away, however his arm was infected in the process and he removed it and kicked it at Fu. As Fu evaded it, Tobi teleported him away too. Tobi then retrieved Sasuke and Karin from the Kamui dimension, telling him that he has a gift for Sasuke, and brings Sasuke out to fight Danzo. Danzo however has finished releasing his arm, revealing it to be covered in multiple Sharingan, and says that he'll take Sasuke's and Tobi's too.
Tobi watched the ensuing battle and was happy that Sasuke would strike down Karin in order to get to Danzo. However Danzo didn't die right away and tried to leave, but Tobi intercepted him. Danzo then decided to kill himself with a suicide jutsu in order to stop Tobi and Sasuke, Tobi recognized his Reverse Four Symbols Seal and warned Sasuke to get away and they both managed to survive. Tobi then went to take Danzo's body and advised Sasuke to finish off the badly wounded Karin so that she doesn't reveal their plans to enemies. Upon getting back to base Tobi tried to retrieve Shisui's eye from Danzo, but found that Danzo had destroyed the eye; this is where Tobi revealed a large collection of his own Sharingan. While replacing his arm, he's informed by Zetsu that Sasuke was in trouble and went to save Sasuke.
Tobi is confronted at his hideout by Kabuto Yakushi, whom has been empowered by Orochimaru's cells. Since Kabuto worked as a double agent against Akatsuki, Tobi accuses him of being a traitor and attacks but Kabuto keeps his distance, using "Resurrection to the Impure World" to summon: Deidara, Itachi, Kakuzu, Nagato, and Sasori. Rather than attack, Kabuto insisted that he wants to join him. Tobi was weary, wondering why Kabuto wanted to join him, Kabuto said that in return for providing soldiers for Tobi's war that he wants Sasuke. Tobi initially refused, but Kabuto resurrected someone that Tobi couldn't say no to, so Tobi agreed on the condition that Kabuto can't have Sasuke until after the war and he'll be guarding Sasuke at all times before then.
When Tobi came to the Rain Village to retrieve the Rinnegan from Nagato's corpse, Konan was there to stop him. Tobi asked why they betrayed him, and if Naruto was really worth it and Konan replied that Naruto is light incarnate ans brings the flower of hope. Tobi noticed that she was still wearing the Akatsuki cloak and wondered if she missed the group, she replied that the cloaks are a symbol of the blood of war that rained down across their village and that they were made by Yahiko and belong to them, and that the Rinnegan also belongs to the Rain village and not to him.
Tobi corrects her, saying that he was the one that made Yahiko create Akatsuki and he was the one that gave Nagato the Rinnegan, and that both belong to him. Konan attacks with "Paper Shuriken", but Tobi phases through them. Konan flew at Madara, but Tobi grabbed her to suck her up; but she placed explosive seals on some of her paper and tried to kill Tobi while he was solid. It didn't work however, Tobi sucked up most of the explosion, leaving both of them injured but alive. Konan then said that Tobi is darkness and that without light flowers wither and die; she then reveals her trap and the water beneath them turns into paper and splits apart.
Tobi falls into her abyss of paper bombs and he tries to teleport away, but his teleporting isn't instant and Konan attempts to attack with her paper before he can get away and is forced to phase. Konan says that she knew that he wouldn't be fast enough to get away and that her trap will continue for 10 minutes, while Tobi's only capable of staying intangible for 5 minutes. She says that Yahiko and Nagato were never Tobi's pawns and runs out of chakra, with her paper body becoming flesh and blood again. She has a sigh of relief, but then Tobi appears behind her and stabs her with a broken pipe.
She wonders how he survived, saying that she calculated many scenarios and that one should had killed him. Tobi reveals as his left eye closes that he used Izanagi, a jutsu that bends illusions into reality, and that only someone with both the powers of the Uchiha and Senju can use it... and that he gained Hashirama's power during their battle at the Valley of the End. She is baffled and Tobi reveals that Izanagi was a technique used by Rikudou, dreaming up something and then giving it form and that's how he created the nine Bijuu from the Juubi's chakra. Tobi then goes on to tell Konan that she shouldn't had put her trust in Naruto and insulted Nagato, Konan's resolve didn't break though and she tried to attack Tobi, but Tobi grabbed her by the throat and said that he will be like the darkness and make her wilt and die, but first he'll find out where Nagato is using a genjutsu on her. He then goes to the hidden area where Nagato and Yahiko are laying and closes Nagato's eyes and teleports him away to his dimension.
Starting a War
He then reappears with a new mask and clothes, and once again wields his war fan. Kabuto mentions that he has nice new eyes, but Tobi says they were his to begin with. Zetsu interrupts revealing that they got Kisame's info, to which Tobi states that it's time to go after the Kyuubi. Kabuto suggests that he foes to get the Hachibi and Kyuubi. Tobi wonders what Kabuto's trying to do, but Kabuto insists that it's his way of earning Tobi's trust... but wants to be compensated with Hashirama's tissue, but will settle for a Zetsu. Tobi agrees to give Kabuto one Zetsu if he succeeds. Tobi then wanted to show Kabuto something. They go deeper into Tobi's lair which reveals a massive plant growing all through it, and Tobi reveals that it was grown using tissue that he stole from Hashirama. He then reveals vast legion of Zetsu clones. After Kabuto returns, he reveals that he could not capture the Jinchuuriki, but he did capture Yamato in order to retrieve information and empower the Zetsu clones. After Kabuto's done, Tobi begins the march to war and Kabuto revealed more Edo Tensei summons: the deceased Jinchuuriki, the deceased Seven Swordsmen, 2nd Mizukage, 3rd Raikage, 4th Kazekage, Muu, Hazashi, Dan, Asuma, Hanzo, Chiyo, Kimimaro, Haku , Kinkaku and Ginkaku, Chukichi, Pakura, Gari, and Toroi.
Tobi became unnerved by Edo Tensei, and demanded that Kabuto reveal to him how it works and it's weaknesses. Kabuto reluctantly agreed, Tobi gave Kabuto Fu and Torune to show him how it works and killed Torune. Kabuto then resurrected Torune using Fu as a sacrifice, and revealed to Tobi's Edo Tensei's weakness... none.
Tobi starts to become impatient with capturing Killer Bee and Naruto, so he goes with his back-up plan. He decides to seal the Hachibi tail that Killer Bee used to trick Sasuke, since it contained the Hachibi's chakra. And went to the battlefield to retrieve Kinkaku and Ginkaku who were sealed away, wanting to seal the Kyuubi's chakra within them. While there, he summoned Gedo Mazo which began to terrorize the ninja alliance and fought Chouji and Chouza. Darui and others tried to stop Tobi from taking Kinkaku and Ginkaku, but could not.
As night falls, war ceases until it becomes light out again. As the alliance regroups to recuperate and formulate strategies, Tobi uses the time of rest to cause unrest. He has his Zetsu army use their shape shifting abilities to assume the identities of ninjas they have come into contact with during the war and infiltrate the base camps. One in particular imitated Neji and infiltrated a medic camp, and started killing off the medic ninja in secret so that the alliance couldn't heal their wounded. This was to cause paranoia and chaos within the ranks, not knowing who's an enemy, and force them to leave themselves tired when the war restarts in the morning. However it was a much greater scheme than originally perceived, Tobi anticipated Naruto's new abilities after learning to control the Kyuubi and is using the disguised Zetsus to draw Naruto out to capture him. Over the course of the night, Tobi created his own Pein using the deceased jinchuurki that Kabuto resurrected, with them gaining both the Sharingan and Rinnegan like himself, and they charge out to fight at dawn.
Unknown to Tobi, but as he made his way to capture Naruto and Bee, Kabuto found them first and is diligently trying to capture them hoping to hold them over Tobi's head. When Kabuto's attempts with Itachi, Nagato, and the Third Raikage failed, he decided to bring out the sixth coffin which so startled Tobi. As Naruto and the Alliance cheered after their assumed defeat of their immediate enemies, they were surprised to see the contents of the 6th coffin appear, the real Madara Uchiha, leaving the alliance to wonder who or what's under the mask of the man who calls himself "Madara".
Revival of the Ten-Tails
Tobi along with his Neo Pein find Naruto and Bee. Roshi uses his lava jutsu, "Blazing Boulder Stream". Naruto and Bee jump out of the way and try to attack Yagura, but his stopped by his "Reflecting Water" jutsu that creates duplicates of Naruto and Bee which attack them, they are then attacked by Utakata's "Bubble Boom" which they escape. They are then soon blinded by Fuu's "Scale Camouflage" and are then knocked down from Yu'gito's claws and Han's steam-powered punch. Naruto reveals that everyone knows about the real Madara, but when asked who he is, Tobi says he's no one and just wants to complete the Moon's Eye Plan, saying that the world is full of misery and says that the Jinchuuriki should know that far too well, but Naruto dismisses it. Naruto followed up by saying that he's going to tear off Tobi's mask, in which Tobi said he'd have to work for it and his Neo Pein partially transform into their Bijuu. Bee tries to attack Fuu, but she dodges all of his attacks, even his ambushes. As Naruto tells Bee about their shared vision, Roshi covers himself in a magma armor and attacks. After Naruto and Bee dodge it, Yugito attacks with a homing fireball and she tackles to the ground as they run from it. They notice the spike in Yugito's chest that Tobi's using to control them, so Naruto grabs Roshi when he attacks and tries to destroy his spike, but Han kicks Naruto away. Bee decides that the forest gives them too much of an advantage and is going to blast it down. Bee then creates "Ink Clones" to harden around the jinchuuriki and restrain them, but they transform into the Version 2 forms and start to give Naruto and Bee even more trouble, but thankfully Kakashi and Guy arrive to help. Roshi eventually transforms into Yonbi and nearly kills Naruto, as a turn of events Naruto is able to release Yonbi from Tobi's control, which prompted Tobi to make all the others transform into their Bijuu and beat the team down. However, thanks to Naruto and Kyuubi finally allying, Naruto was able to release all of the Bijuu from Tobi's control. This took it's toll on Naruto though, and now he cannot enter full Tailed Beast transformation like earlier.
Soon, the Tobi's Neo Pein bodies collapse and he realizes that Kabuto has been defeated and someone had undone the Edo Tensei jutsu. Taking matters into his own hands, he summons the Demonic Statue and tosses the Sage's tools containing Kinkaki and Ginkaku inside, completing the process of gathering all nine Tailed Beasts and initiating the revival of the Juubi. The Juubi needed time to regenerate, and Tobi's enemies were still out there, so he engaged them to buy it some time. Tobi used his space-time abilities to dodge most of the team's attacks and redirect others, pushing the team back and frustrating Naruto. Before long, though, when he redirected one of Kakashi's kunai attacks, he received a slash on his mask, something that Kakashi noted and took care to deal with later. After Tobi phased through Naruto's "Rasengan", kakashi used his "Kamui" to teleport the "Rasengan", and Tobi's shoulder blew up. Realizing the two jutsu shared a connection, the team now began to coordinate attacks so that Kakashi would teleport either Guy or Naruto the exact moment Tobi used his phasing ability. Tobi realized their plan but his efforts were too late and too late, and soon took a hit to the face from Naruto which destroyed his mask. With his mask off, Kakashi and Guy realized he was their former teammate, Obito.
Kakashi is devastated to learn that Obito is not only alive but is now one of the world's worst criminals. Madara Uchiha, who had found a way around the end of the Edo Tensei jutsu, soon arrives at Obito's side. He chides Obito for reviving the Ten-Tails prematurely and in the state he is in, wondering what had happened to their plan. Obito told him he had no other choice before returning the elder Uchiha's war fan back to him, and points him in the direction of Naruto and Killer Bee. While Madara goes after them, Obito engages Kakashi with no remorse. He ignores his old friend's pleas for an explanation, slashes him across the chest with two large shuriken, stabs his knee, and nearly kills him, but is stopped only by the intervention of Naruto's Nine-tailed chakra mode. Kakashi gets over his initial shock and starts to fight seriously, forcing Obito to send him away with Kamui. At this time, however, the team devised a plan to destroy the Statue, but they were a moment too late. The Ten-Tails emerged and Obito and Madara took position atop the it's head and attached themselves to it so they could control its actions.
Since the Ten-Tails has been revived, neither Obito nor Madara saw any need to keep Naruto and Bee alive. They ordered the Ten-Tails to launch an attack at them, but they were saved when the whole of the Allied Shinobi Forces arrived, and Ino Yamanaka and Hinata combined their jutsus to steer the Ten-Tails' blast away from Naruto, Kakashi, Guy, and Killer Bee. Obito tells Naruto that no matter what he does, his efforts are futile and with the power of the Ten-Tails, he will end this world and it's bring an end to the absurd idea of "hope". While he was giving his speech, though, the Allied forces' leaders came up with a plan to effectively halt the Ten-Tails and prevent it from being used. Using the array of ninjutsu each nation has proficiency in, the Alliance manages to pin the Ten-Tails in the ground and create a hold for it. This is short lived however, as the only reason it allowed itself to be captured was to evolve into it's second state. Once it was freed, Obito and Madara use the Ten-Tails to attack the Allied Forces' HQ, taking out their leaders in an attempt to "behead the snake". Madara chastises Obito again, telling him that their fight should have been way easier and it's his fault that he wasn't revived at the correct time and correct strength. Obito then tells him that he never trusted him and that he was going to go on ahead with his own version of the "Moon of the Eye" plan. Obito then takes control of the Ten-Tails and uses it to launch thousands of wooden spikes down on the ninja below. In the attack, Neji sacrifices himself to save Naruto and Hinata, and Obito uses his death to shove Naruto's words back in his face, ones which were "I"ll never let my friends die!" Obito tells him that the only choice the world has is to give up and allow themselves to be captured by the Infinite Tsukuyomi and live in a world of dreams. His words appear to hit Naruto, until Hinata and the rest of the Shinobi Forces convince him and themselves to reject this idea and forge peace in their own way.
The Allied Force unite again, this time empowered by Naruto's Nine-Tails' chakra, and create an attack that separates Obito and Madara from the Ten-Tails, releasing it from their control. The Ten-Tails now begins to attack unrestrained, and before Kakashi can use his "Kamui" against it, Obito intercepts him and transports both of them to the Kamui dimension. Once there, Kakashi again tries to question him to understand why he chose to betray his village, to which Obito finally begins to answer. He tells Kakashi that he knows the whole story behind Rin's death and that he chose to ally with Madara because of the way the world was, stating a world that made Rin want to kill herself should be replaced. he two then engage in a genjutsu battle, but with neither able to gain the upper hand, they decide to settle things like they did back when they were teammates: a duel. They start off holding up tow fingers, and then charge at each other. The fight starts with Obito matching Kakashi near evenly with advantages to him granted by the Hashirama cells implanted in him. He quickly heals from kunai slashes and overpowers Kakashi, but his former teammate uses his misdirection and deception to get around Obito's defenses. As they near the end of the match, Obito pierces Kakashi through the chest with a black chakra receiver at the same time that Kakashi pierces him through the heart with a "Chidori".
Obito tells Kakashi that he will let him win this battle, but not the war, as he teleports himself back out of the Kamui dimension and back to the battlefield. Gasping on the ground, Madara sees him and realizes he can no longer use him, so he activates the seal he placed inside Obito all those years ago and attempts to use him to bring Madara back to life, flesh and blood all. The other reanimated Hokage, who had arrived to the battlefield to battle the unrestrained Ten-Tails, notice that Madara is attempting to bring himself back to life, and orders any nearby shinobi to stop him. Minato manages to use his "Flying Thunder God" technique to teleport to Obito, using the mark he placed on him when they fought sixteen years ago. It is only then that he recognizes him as Obito, and Madara also realizes that he failed in his own mission. Obito had managed to seal the Ten-Tails inside of him, allowing him to become the Ten-Tails' jinchuuriki.
The Hokage decide to make a preemptive strike and Hashirama uses his "Holy Gates" jutsu to bring down barriers on Obito in an attempt to suppress the Tailed Beasts inside of him. However, Obito breaks out of them without so much as lifting a finger, then uses his chakra arms to rip open the barrier around him, despite the same barrier holding back the force of a Ten-Tailed Beast Ball. The Hokage all realize that Obito is now stronger than them all, and they don't waste any time heading over to engage him. As they discuss his strength and possible strategies to beat him, they are caught unawares as he runs right through them, disintegrating an arm each and half of their midsection. Since they are just Edo Tensei zombies, they couldn't die, and they used this advantage to place paper bombs on Obito's person and wrap him up with Mokuton binders. The Second Hokage, Tobirama Senju, used a technique where he summons hundreds of paper bombs to go off one after the other, but Obito used a shield made up of gudoudama. These gudoudama are made up of all five chakra natures and are superior to both kekkai genkai and kekkai tota. These can be used to create any number of weapons, but Obito used them to create the Sage of Six Paths' staff, a sphere around himself to act as a shield, and is able to pass them through holes in his hands to become adjustable weapons of length and thickness. Obito uses these weapons to cut in half all of the shuriken Hiruzen Sarutobi threw at him and then blew apart his whole upper body. As he heads over to engage Minato again, he becomes inflated and crashes to the ground, his body unaccustomed to being a jinchuuriki. Minato uses this to attack at him, but Obito travels underground with his upper body to attack Naruto's Toad ally, Gamakichi, and then attacks Naruto with his gudoudama but is intercepted by Sasuke and his Susanoo.
Still using only his upper half, Obito charges at Naruto and Sasuke and grabs them over the eyes, intending to kill them the same way he did the Third Hokage earlier. Before he could do so, however, Naruto creates a chakra arm and grabs Minato, allowing him and Sasuke to be teleported away to safety. Obito continues to struggle taking control of the Ten-Tails inside of him, firing off one of his gudoudama but nowhere near the enemy ninja. Thinking of Rin and using her as his driving force and determination, Obito succeeds in reeling in the Ten-Tails and gains complete control over it and the other Tailed-Beasts. Now with control of the Ten-Tails, Obito is able to fight more fluidly and coherently, reacting to a Flying Thunder God blitz from Minato, cut off his arm before he could teleport away, and place one of his gudoudama on his shoulder to explode and take out him, Naruto, and Sasuke.
Thinking he had them beat, Obito was surprised to see Tobirama teleport behind him and give his gudoudama back, which exploded not a second later. Obito was able to shield himself by creating a large sphere around himself and then used his gudoudama to repel Sasuke's "Amaterasu" attack directly after. The two Konoha ninja then combined their "Rasengan" and "Amaterasu" jutsu in an attempt to defeat his defensive powers, and Obito was shocked to see that Minato and Tobirama both used their teleportation jutsus to switch places with each other, allowing the duo to hit Obito with their jutsu. Despite this, he shrugged this off by calling his other gudoudama to him and used them to disperse the fire around himself without any harm. Obito then tells the assembled ninja that he was attained powers of a god, and that he's glad Minato became Hokage because he it was easier to give up on his dream after watching his former Master's many failures. His speech really angered Naruto, though, and Tobirama teleported him right behind Obito to hit him with a senjutsu-enhanced "Rasengan". Obito realizes that senjutsu is his new Achilles' Heel, and not wanting to waste any more time or risk the team landing another blow, he summons a smaller version of the Divine Tree which buds flowers along its side. The flowers start charging four Ten-Tailed Beast Balls, and to prevent the surrounding ninja army from escaping, he creates a stronger barrier than the one the four Hokage created earlier.
Obito tells Naruto that this is the only way the world can end, and that today is the anniversary of his parents' death, marking it Naruto's birthday as well. Naruto manages to give some more chakra to each ninja in the army, but Obito remarks it's too little and too late, and sends the ninja to their deaths firing off the Ten-Tailed Beast Balls. Once the smoke clears, he is startled to find that all the ninja have been safely teleported outside the barrier by Minato, since Naruto linked their chakra and linked his with everyone in the army. Naruto manages to combine his Nine-Tailed powers with his senjutsu chakra and undergo full Tailed Beast transformation with Minato, creating a massive "Rasengan" imbued with senjutsu and the two teleport behind Obito and launch the "Rasengan" into his back. Obito is able to defend against this by creating another shield out of his gudoudama and creates his chakra arms to attack the two jinchuuriki, but they are waved off by their own chakra tails. Obito realizes that he needs to up the stakes and finally enter the final stages of his plan. He summons the Ten-Tails from his body, which sprouts the Divine Tree. Once the tree blooms, it will cast a Sharingan on the moon, thus completing the plan Obito set out so long ago to complete.
As the tree sprouts, it begins sending out large and extensive roots that suck up the chakra and life force from any ninja they come into contact with. Because of these branches, Naruto and Minato lose a large chunk of their chakra and are unable to keep up their Tailed Beast modes. Obito declares it's the end of shinobi, and soon his words hit the Alliance and they start to waver in their courage. However Sasuke decides that he isn't going to be swayed and jumps in to fight, and soon Naruto has recovered enough to join the fight himself. The two enter their Susanoo and Tailed Beast modes to fight Obito, and he uses his gudoudama to create the Sword of Nunoboko, a weapon said to be used by the Sage of Six Paths himself to create the world. In the fight, Obito is able to use his speed to keep away and defend against both of their attacks, using the sword and his other gudoudama to block Susanoo sword slashes and Nine-Tailed claw strikes. Obito soon takes hold of Naruto and Sasuke with his gudoudama and rushes down toward the ground, slamming them down hard.
This causes the two of them to lose concentration and release their forms, and Obito asks Naruto his intentions and why he continues to fight, knowing full well that hatred will just increase and he'll suffer more pain. Naruto answers that he continues to do so because that's his ninja way, and soon he powers up again and combines his Nine-Tailed mode with Sasuke's Susanoo, having the Susanoo cover and act like an armor to his Tailed Beast mode. Obito tells them that it is futile and that in only a few minutes time, the flower will bud atop the Divine Tree and the world will be cast into the genjutsu. Naruto calls out to his other teammates in the Konoha 11 and has them all use a "Rasengan" he creates in each of the nine tails to break Obito's shield. Obito charges at them, claiming he'll end this world with the sword that created it, and as his shield is broken and his sword clashes with the duo's, Obito starts to have visions of a different life. He sees himself back in Konohagakure among his other classmates, becoming a Jounin alongside them, and having his face carved on the Hokage monument and becoming Hokage. This moment causes his resolve to weaken and his sword loses the clash with Sasuke and Naruto's. The duo slash him across the midsection and the eight Tailed Beasts begin to make their way out of his body, and with the help of the rest of the ninja alliance, Obito has all of the Tailed Beasts extracted from him, causing him to lose his powers and revert back to normal.
He falls to the ground and once he lands, Kakashi teleports himself back out of the Kamui dimension and intends to kill him but is stopped by Minato. He then tells the two of them that Rin was his only ray of hope and that after losing her, he only saw the world for the dark place he thought it to be. After taking up the name of "Madara Uchiha" and traveling the world, what he saw only confirmed this idea and he fell further down the dark path. But after meeting and fighting against Naruto, he was able to see that his path wasn't the only one and wasn't even the best path. Kakashi then convinces him that Naruto is worth betting on and Obito decides to do the same thing Nagato did earlier: use the "Rinne Rebirth" jutsu to bring everyone he recently killed back to life. However as he's trying to perform this, Black Zetsu comes out from underneath him and takes over half of his body, making him use the jutsu to bring Madara back to life from his Edo Tensei form.
With Obito severely weakened and at the mercy of Black Zetsu, the former ally attempted to steal back Obito's left eye Rinnegan and give it to Madara, but Minato and Kakashi were right there and forced Zetsu to attach himself to half of Obito's body. Zetsu claims that with him attached to Obito's body, he'll be able to make him live a little linger, but plans to use Obito's body to fight both Konoha ninja. As the now-revived Madara summoned the Gedo Mazou from Obito, what little strength he had was again sapped, forcing him to his knees and paving the way for Zetsu to take the Rinnegan and flee. Obito is resilient, and fights back, telling Zetsu that he won't give him the Rinnegan and will have Kakashi destroy the right one. Zetsu says that Obito was a failure in everything he did, and that since White Zetsu had found his other eye, he was destined to die as nothing more than trash. Obito eventually lost control of his body and Zetsu used it to battle Kakashi and Minato until Gaara arrived with Naruto on his deathbed after the latter had his Nine-Tails chakra removed from him by Madara. As Minato attempted to transfer his own Nine-Tails chakra into Naruto to save his son's life, Black Zetsu took this opportunity to travel underground and receive the chakra instead, finally accomplishing the task of stealing Nine-Tails for Madara.
With the Nine-Tails now in his possession, Zetsu returns to Obito just as Madara arrives at their location, now the new jinchuuriki of the Ten-Tails after re-absorbing all the Tailed Beasts. Madara seems pleased that Zetsu is in possession of the Rinnegan and half of Nine-Tails' chakra, but as Zetsu attempts to leave and hand them over, Obito re-assumes control of his body and traps Zetsu with him. He takes this opportunity to ask Madara what he really meant to the older Uchiha, to which Madara simply replies that Obito was Madara, someone who took that name in order to make the world a better place without the need for chakra or power. He then tries to remind Obito why he joined his side in the first place, that this life was Hell and the only way to fix it is the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Madara then calls Obito forward, and after a surprise attack from Minato, Kakashi and Gaara goes wrong, Obito stands face to face with Madara with the apparent intention of rejoining his side. Obito then punches Madara in the chest and claims that he's the old Obito now, the same one that wanted to become Hokage and cared for his friends.
Obito manages to grab and steal part of the Eight Tails' and One Tails' chakra but is unable to teleport himself to the Kamui dimension to follow Naruto and save him. Realizing that he would have to make an opening in order to find the time to use "Kamui", Obito teams up with Kakashi to double his teleporting speed, using both his and Kakashi's Sharingan to teleport and thus allowing him to escape Madara's goududama. Obito then begins the process of giving the Nine-Tails' chakra to Naruto in order to save him. After he successfully transferred the power, he teleported Naruto back so that he could fight against Madara. Obito knew the only thing he still had to do was prevent his remaining Rinnegan from falling into Madara's hands, so he asked Sakura to destroy it for him. However, before she cut cut it out, Madara miraculously teleported himself into the Kamui dimension and attacked them with a goududama staff.
Instead of saving himself, Obito chose to teleport Sakura out of the Kamui dimension, leaving himself at the mercy of Madara once again. Madara then tells Obito that everything from Rin's death to Obito attempting to become the Ten-Tails's jinchuuriki himself was all part of his plan, angering the younger Uchiha to even greater lengths. Despite this, Obito was unable to do anything as Madara took back his Rinnegan and teleported them both out of the Kamui dimension to finish the Infinite Tsukuyomi. Obito was again taken over as his strength faded, and soon Madara activated the Infinite Tsukuyomi and captured the world's population under his spell. Being attached to Black Zetsu allowed Obito to remain unchanged, and thus he witnessed Zetsu betray Madara, seal him, and awaken Kaguya Ohtsutsuki, the founder and originator of chakra. With Kaguya now released, Zetsu returned to her side, finally leaving Obito's body. Obito remained unconscious while Kaguya transported Team Kakashi into another dimension until he was healed by Naruto's new powers. Now awake, Obito notices that Kaguya uses a space-time dimension ability similar to his Kamui, and that if he could just sync the two techniques, he could enter her dimensions just as she could. He then proposes that he takes Sakura with him to try and locate Sasuke, who had been teleported to a different dimension, and bring him back to Naruto. After Kaguya is pressured into entering another dimension, Obito syncs up with her dimension portal and leaves with Sakura and a clone of Naruto in search of Sasuke. In the other dimension, Obito uses his "Kamui" to search Kaguya's dimensions in order to bring Sasuke back into the fight. He searches through at least three before finding him, but begins to run out of chakra just as Sasuke approaches the portal. It closes before he can pass through, but thanks to his new eye ability, he's able to pass through before being trapped. He then teleports them back to where Naruto, Kakashi, and Kaguya are, but the Rabbit Princess soon realizes that both Naruto and Sasuke are back together and teleports everyone into a gravity dimension, one where gravity is increased to the point where Obito and his friends could barely stand.
Kaguys then fires off her "Bone Ash" technique at Naruto and Sasuke, but since the gravity is so great they can't dodge or move out of the way. Obito, with added strength from the spirit of Rin, as well as Kakashi, jump in front of the two young shinobi in order to save them. Kakashi believes that both of them would go to see Rin now, but Obito uses his "Kamui" to teleport the 'Bone Ash" going towards Kakashi, telling him that he can't intrude yet on Obito's time with Rin. As his flesh fades away, Obito tells Naruto to become Hokage at all costs and Kakashi to support the new generation. As he meets Rin in the afterlife, Obito tells her to hang on as he goes to support Kakashi one more time, using the last of his Sage of Six Paths' chakra to give Kakashi both of his Sharingan, granting his best friend both abilities of Kamui and a Perfect Susanoo. With these new techniques, Kakashi is able to come up with and implement a plan to defeat Kaguya alongside his team, finally sealing the Princess. Obito then thanks Kakashi as they meet the last time in Kakashi's psyche as Obito finally passes on, finally at peace.
Powers and Abilities
Aside from the Sharingan and it's numerous optical abilities, Obito has displayed his Mangekyō Sharingan ability called "Kamui" that allows him to entirely or partially shift his body into a personal dimension, allowing him to phase or teleport himself and others. Aside from being being able to suck things into his black hole-like eye, he's also able to jettison people or objects out of it as well. His mastery of his eyes allows him to control the Kyūbi. He's also capable of using Izanagi, a jutsu that allows him to escape injury or death for an indeterminate amount of time by turning reality into a fantasy... at the cost of one of his Sharingan eyes.
He has displayed various other jutsu, such as: "Grand Fireball" which lets him exhale a huge ball of fire, as well as "Wild Dance", where he exhales a gigantic tornado of fire, and "Mole Hiding" which allows him to travel freely underground. He has also created a strong barrier called the "Uchiha Flame Formation". Even as a young teen, his Fire style was strong enough to completely burn many large pieces of bamboo thrown at him and Kakashi.
He's also in possession of Hashirama's cells and gained his power. The cells integrated into his body, making him somewhat plant-like, which grants him many passive abilities like being able to withstand severe damage or lethal wounds, regenerate rapidly, and replace limbs. His physiology also allows him to go without things such as food or sleep, and has afforded him immense strength. He's actively capable of growing trees from his body that he can use for a variety of uses, such as ensnaring or impaling the opponent or crushing them to death.
He has recently gained the Rinnegan. Aside from granting its user all 5 elements, it possesses 6 abilities based on the 6 paths of Buddhist reincarnation: gravity manipulation (Deva), body modification (Asura), telepathy (Human), summoning (Animal), chakra absorption (Preta), and resurrection (Naraka). He has also went as far as to create his own version of Pein by using the previous jinchuuriki, giving them each a Sharingan and Rinnegan from his collections.
He's also able to summon and control both the Kyūbi and Gedō Mazō, a giant living statue capable of sealing Bijū and human souls. It currently contains the collective power of seven Bijū, and counting.
As The Ten-Tails Jinchūriki
In the form given by the Ten-Tails itself, this allowed Obito to turn to a god-like being with godly powers. His strength and speed increased quickly upon taking this form and his ninjutsu and taijutsu tipped off the scale and his defense turned to be unbreakable shield, only due to its black chakra orbs which nullify all ninjutsu. They also gave him immortality and additional healing his abilities are given by the Ten-tails itself by easily making tailed beast balls and using there abilities as his own he also can re-release the Ten-Tails at will this also gave him the power of the sages most powerful weapon the Sword of Nunoboko which was said to create the world.
He could easily use chakra arms to rip open the barrier constructed by the four previous Hokage, even though that same barrier could remain intact after housing a Ten-Tailed Beast Ball (more powerful than the already mountain-level regular Tailed Beast Balls). He could also sprout a mini Divine Tree that blossomed four flowers, each of which was capable of firing off a Ten-Tails Beast Ball with devastating effects.
